Road to the Final Four

Road to the Final Four

The Sweet 16 and the Elite 8 are all done and both rounds were tough on everybody’s bracket. I would love to see a person with #11 Dayton and #8 Kentucky getting this far.

Sweet 16: Thursday

#11 Dayton Defeated #10 Stanford- Score: 82-72

#2 Wisconsin Defeated #6 Baylor- Score: 69-52

#1 Florida Defeated #4 UCLA- Score: 79-68

#1 Arizona Defeated #4 San Diego State- Score: 70-64

Sweet 16: Friday

#2 Michigan Defeated #11 Tennessee- Score: 73-71

#7 Uconn Defeated #3 Iowa State- Score: 81-76

#8 Kentucky Defeated #4 Louisville- Score: 74-69

#4 Michigan State Defeated #1 Virginia- Score: 61-59

The Sweet 16 was very surprising because a bunch of top seeds were beaten. The Elite 8 was even more surprising with results of more top seeds getting beat.

Elite 8: Saturday

#1 Florida Defeated #11 Dayton- Score: 62-52

#2 Wisconsin Defeated #1 Arizona- Score: 64-63


Elite 8: Sunday

#7 Uconn Defeated #4 Michigan State- Score: 60-54

#8 Kentucky Defeated #2 Michigan- Score: 75-72

Uconn is the first #7 team to reach the final four since they stretched the tournament to 64 teams in 1985.

Two teams that didn’t really have a great season and two teams that had a great season make up the Final Four.

Come back later in the week to see my picks in the Final Four.
